, these kind of massacres and it's funding the nra. the nra is the reason why we don't have change in this country. there's a huge majority of approval background checks on assault weapons ban. the majority of americans are speaking. >> we had a fox news poll that says 69 percent of the american people support the gun -- the proposed salt weapons ban. there are the numbers on your side but that doesn't answer the question about whether -- you bill de blas yo private citizen, not public advocate, you can say whatever you want but once you blanket yourself in state authority it takes on a new meaning. it gives you more power and gives you this special power to cause people to behave in a way that they might not otherwise want to behave. what if you had a poll significance targeting to obtain legal abortions. you are allowed to rent to them but they had apportions. really strongly encourage you from renting from a woman who had an abortion. >> there is no parallel. huge powerful industry backed by the single most powerful lobby. >> single most powerful is in the nra. it is funded by t

from the gun lobby. what are we hearing from. >> they the nra said they think this was an assault on firearms by the president. they got personal today. they put out an ad that basically talked about the president's own daughters and the security they have at their school and suggested in their words the president was an elitist hypocrite. take a listen. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why see skeptical about putting armed security in their schools when they have armed guards at their school. jay carney immediately said this was completely out of bounds. he put out a statement most americans believe a president's childrens should not be used as pawns in the political fight. to go so far to make the children subject of attack ad repugnant. clear sign of day one of the president's proposals being laid out here that he has a major showdown on his hands, bill. >> bill: big battle starting second term. ed henry at the white house lawn tonight. u.s. carriers stop flying the 787 dream liner. just aheads details on the emergency that sparked this order and what it a
owners who have no plans to give up their weapons. even thought about joining the nra. after newtown they started a political action committee to fight for tougher gun restrictions. they are calling for universal background checks covering gun shows and private dealers and a ban on magazines with more than 10 rounds of ammunition which kelly says might have saved the youngest victim of the shooting that almost killed his wife. the first bullet went into gabby's head. bullet number 13 went into a-year-old girl named christina taylor green when he tried to reload one 33 round magazine with another 33 round magazine and he dropped it it and a woman named patricia mayse grabbed it and it gave bystander time to tackle him. i contend if that same thing happened when he was trying to reload one ten round magazine with another 10 round magazine, meaning did he not have access to a high capacity magazine and the same thing happened, christina taylor green would be alive today. i certainly am willing to give up my right to own a high capacity magazine to bring that young woman back that young
balance to the nra. there is an organization called americans nor responsible solutions that they are launching today and they make the argument that until now the gun lobby's political contributions have not been matched by others, that is about to change, no longer is what they write, is that how you see it? >> clearly that's their strategy, but again it all comes down to the sort of nuts and bolts of it. what is it that they are proposing? when you get into dash tkaerbg, if you want to create a nation hal database of people who are mentally unstable and shouldn't be getting guns, well do you think maybe that there might be some objection? forget the nra, do you think there might be some objection to epg keeping -- the government keeping a list of mentally unstable people? do you think maybe the aclu, or maybe some other group, psychiatric group might have some objection to the federal government doing that sort of thing stphao. bill: thing? criminals and the mentally ill can easily purchase guns by aeu sroeug avoid -gsing background checks. >> there are laws who preve
recall, was endorsed by the nra, harry reid voted against the assault ban in 2004 and got a b grade from the nra. so if i were giving the democrats any type of advice, they should not follow the president's liberal agenda on gun control. jon: -pt president doesn't have to run for office again. he's won re-election. he has four years to get done what he wants to do. we heard in the inaugural address that he seems to have moved -- well he seems to be pushing some more liberal positions than he espoused earlier. you have senators like tim johnson of south dakota. mark udall of colorado, maryland drew of lashes all of the democratic senators, all of them from states that do not favor increasing restrictions on john sales. >> then also you have members of congress that are up for re-election, and some of these are blue dog democrats. when people go to the polls if they do not vote their conscience and vote for their constituents, people at the polls are going to give them pain of defeat. when it comes to god in certain states and when it comes to guns people do not go against the grain of wha
have locked in a safe at home. what we do want is what the majority of the nra members and other americans want, responsible changes in our law to require responsible gun ownership and reduce gun violence. here is a live look at some of the preliminaries in tucson, in just a few minutes at exactly 10:11am mountain time bells will ring out across the city marking the moment two years ago when a gunman opened fire outside a soup irmarket killing six people and wounding 12 including former congresswoman giffords. jenna: for some context when we are we talking about gun laws. federal gun control efforts go back to the 1930s. congress passed a national firearms act in 1934 during an era of rampant violence linked to prohibition. the law targets automatic fire weapons, imposes a tax on the making and selling of firearms, and requires registration of certain types of firearms. well decades later in 1968 following several high profile assassinations congress even acted the gun control act. that law prohibits all convicted felons, drug users, and the mentally ill from buying guns. it rais
, strong majority of nra members as well. i think president clinton was simply saying to democrats and it all of us, don't think there's the us/them guns versus safety dynamic. there isn't. responsible gun owners want to see safety, they want to see background checks and gun show loopholes closed and we shouldn't condescend and assume that they don't. >> megyn: but he seemed to go further. >> megyn. >> megyn: let me respond and give awe chance. he seemed to go further, sally, seemed to go to the fact that the polls show support for some of the measures and said to this group, it's not the public support that matters, it's how strongly people feel about the issue, quote, all these holes polls that you see saying the public is for us, they're meaningless in they're not votings, who is truly motivated to show up and vote based on gun control and gun right. he seems it's the gun rights people to seem to have the stronger motivation. go ahead, lars. having sally on my radio show, but she's wrong about one thing because she leaves out the polls, also say, washington post poll a week ago
